and say mitt romney became the tea party. >> that's right. he has adopted the agenda fully. the ryan budget has gotten a lot of at attention, but a lot of other items that they have been passing really reveal what the agenda is. restricting women's right to get an abortion even if they are dying or have been raped. allowing people to carry concealed weapons even if they are drunk. >> eliot: it is shocking when you look at it and it is the todd akin social agenda republican party. even though everybody pretended to recoil in shock when todd akin made his horrific comments they went on to embrace his agenda. what me taste sized against mitt romney was he didn't have the forty tuesday to say no i'm not going there. >> yes. and they tried over and over again, they ran one candidate up the flag pole after another. is >> eliot: when you look back at bill clinton who we look at as one of the great politicians of the past 30 or 40 years, his sister soldier moment was when he went to the base and said i disagree with you about this. it showed a certain force of character

these days, if you notice, they're not talking anymore more about what paul ryan and governor romney are really for. they're spending an awful lot of time telling you what we, barack obama and joe biden are against and what we've done. and they just attack everything. >> the republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan also has a very busy day. congressman ryan is going to have a rally in ohio in just a couple of hours. more on that in just a moment. this morning, though, he was in derry, new hampshire. >> all these promises were made in the idea of hope and change. and people, it sounded pretty good. but when the rhetoric went aside and the time to act occurred, the ideas are the old ideas that have failed time and again. >> and as we speak, former senator rick santorum is also in ohio, getting ready to stomp for the romney campaign. he is appearing with ohio republican congressman bill johnson who is in a tough reelection race. more on all of this throughout the next hour. but we start -- we start in the buckeye state where paul ryan has the campaign event that we just mentione
. ron mott travels with paul ryan. joining me on the phone now from columbus, ron, what does the romney/ryan campaign think that paul ryan can do for its message in ohio? >> hey there, craig. good saturday to you. i think he is doing exactly what this ticket believes he can do. we just made a pit stop here at the varsity club on the ohio state university campus. going in to just meet people. and you can see people coming out of surrounding buildings to come see what all the fuss is about. this is the kind of excitement paul ryan generates with his ticket. i think that's why mitt romney ultimately chose him, because he can connect with people on a very real level. he is from wisconsin. he is a midwestern guy. he is a hunter and a fisherman. all the values that people hold near and dear in the midwest, this is paul ryan. so after this event today, though, he will be speaking to the national u.s. sportsmen alliance annual banquet. one of the challenge that this campaign has is that the message they're selling, at least here in ohio does not seem to be selling as well as the campaign would like.
in the sunshine state, biden has been blasting republicans mitt romney and paul ryan for their medicare reform plan, claiming more financial burdens on seniors. president obama is off the campaign trail. >>> and mitt romney, he is also taking the day off, but his running mate paul ryan is campaigning hard today in two critical states, ohio and new hampshire. paul steinhauser is live in derry, new hampshire. what's the romney-ryan strategy in these key states? >> last hour when i joined you, this place was packed. it was noisy. and pretty quiet right now. the only people left are myself and photo journalist bob crowley. now he's moved on to ohio. what is the strategy? a lot of what you saw today, a lot of rallies to make sure the republican supporters and other independent voters here in new hampshire listen to what they have to say. lot of the strategy is also television commercials. and what you don't see, doesn't get a lot of news but is really important is the so called ground game. the field operations that the campaigns have in these states like here in new hampshire and in ohio where rya
, as the president and mitt romney get ready for the debate. paul ryan and vice president joe biden are on the campaign trail. specific new hampshire. the race here is kind of close. the most recent poll shows president obama with a five-point advantage over mitt romney. definitely a very close contest here in new hampshire. this is a state that may not know paul ryan very well, but knows mitt romney very well, who was governor of neighboring massachusetts. he owns a vacation home here in new hampshire. spends a lot of time in this state. >> thanks so much. we're going to keep an eye on it. certainly get ready to hear those debates. thanks so much. >>> ann romney has been a pretty constant presence on the campaign trail. now she's opening up about a big concern. >> i think my biggest concern, obviously, would just be for the -- his mental well-being. i have all the confidence in the world in his ability, in his decisiveness, in his leadership skills, in his understanding of the economy, in his understanding of what's missing right now in the economy, peeies that are missing to get t
. among its findings, only 51% know the romney-ryan plan would preserve traditional medicare for those 55 and older and retain it as an option for those now younger than that. only about half knew that mitt romney would keep the bush tax cuts in place. fewer than half knew that romney and not obama had promised to increase defense spending. only 23% were aware that payroll taxes had decreased during obama's term in office. only slightly more than half knew that paul ryan is the republican vice presidential nominee. the director of the annenberg center, kathleen hall jamieson, our master media decoder is back with us. welcome. >> thank you. >> so who's responsible for the widespread unawareness or ignorance that you report in your survey? is it the candidate, the media, or the voter? >> it's all three. and fortunately, we have the opportunity with presidential debates to do something that reliably increases knowledge. we've been studying presidential debates for a long time as a scholarly community. and to our surprise, we consistently find that those who watch debates, regardless of the l

of people is romney/ryan. >> signs are always in the perfect position for the television cameras or still photographers to pick them up. >> because of how cameras work, we have something here like 40, 50-foot banners cover buildings and get in a tight shot. >> it's the first thing he walks past that people say as he makes the pivot toward the stage. >> what difference does it make? >> visuals matter so much. campaigns come down to photography. campaigns need light and sound. >> ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the next president of the united states! >> keep it up, keep it up. >> now kill it, kill it. >> if we fail, the message stays here with 2,000 or 3,000 people in cleveland, ohio. the goal is to make sure it translates to as many folks as possible. >> ritter monitors the events as they happen. >> hey, will, you're live on all the cables. can i get more hand signs to that crowd behind the gov? >> setting up one event may take weeks and yet -- >> it may last ten minutes. >> then they do it again. 1:00, 2:00 in the morning, we'll do it again. it heads to the next truck and it heads t
in northern virginia. quote, romney/ryan doing more to fight the spread of lyme disease. this is first posted today by mother johns. here's another page of the flyer. what can a president do about lyme disease? really now? is mitt romney running for president because of tick-borne illness? really? or is somebody else on the campaign food chain making the decisions about what to campaign on? because it is when the freelancing happens, when people start getting desperate and taking matters into their own hands, that then maybe you get a presidential campaign that's trying to be about tick-borne diseases related to deer. maybe that will work in northern virginia? and sometimes it's your buddy, the other mogul with the yacht singing your yacht parking praises. because who among us has not had this challenge. then sometimes it's exactly what you think it's going to be. >> y'all sound like y'all are senior citizens, right? yeah, we don't want -- you don't want obama. you really don't want obama, because he'll get rid of your medicare. you might as well say good-bye to it. yeah, and i don't know if

. >> over and over, president obama has accused governor romney and congressman ryan of doubling down on president bu bush's policies. take a listen. >> instead of doubling down on the same trickle-down economics that got us in this mess in the first place, we need top keep moving forward. we don't need to double down on the same trickle-down policies that got us into this mess in the first place. the problem with what he's trying to sell is we just tried that in the last decade. it didn't work then. it won't work now. >> is that the message that has been resonating with voters? is that why we've seen those numbers move with regards to who do you trust thoonld the economy? >> i think so. it's very good clip that you picked, because you'll notice, president obama didn't mention the name george w. bush. he didn't even say republicans. he talked about the ideas and the policies, because he doesn't want to be targeted with having made excuses for his own performance. but the point gets across. there is a real recent bloomberg poll that showed that the average -- when you asked voters, do
obama nor romney have public events scheduled for today, but vice president joe biden and paul ryan were both on the trail. the vice president was in florida this morning, ryan is in new hampshire and is traveling to ohio for an event tonight. we will, of course, have more on all of these stories over the next two hours. in case you have not heard, the countdown is on to colorado. even though both campaigns are playing the lowered expectations game, you can bet their furiously preparing for the denver debate. joining me now to talk about it, garrett hake, who has been traveling with the romney campaign. garrett, good saturday afternoon to you. what can you tell me about governor romney's debate preparations this weekend? >> well, craig, i can tell you, so far, it hasn't really started at. at the moment, he's over at his oldest son's house in massachusetts. we are expecting governor romney to participate in some more debate prep this weekend. understand senator rob portman from ohio will be here, he'll also be traveling with the governor to denver on monday. they're at the stage now where
was republican. you had mayor rahm emanuel, mitt romney and paul ryan were congratulating him. sometimes the democrats and republicans in washington are often more unified than is portrayed. the majority of this people are often the silent majority. you just don't hear them in means -- in mainstream media. host: recall from virginia on our line for independents. caller: good morning. guest: hi. caller: i am harold johnson from richmond, virginia. host: go ahead with your question or comment. caller: ms. goodman, thank you so much what to do for this country. let me ask you a quick question -- when you become a congressman or house of representatives, you take an oath of office to serve this country. yet, you take another oath from grover norquist saying that you will never raise taxes. i thought we are represented by one constitution and not two constitutions. how can he get away with if you not voted republican in not raising taxes, how does he get away with that? guest: people don't have power but others be so that with power. i think there is a force more power than an egg -- more pow
's where it's really going to resonate. >> david, can the romney camp send in a paul ryan the way obama sends in his vice-president? can he be that effective in the state of florida? >> he's already done that, alex. i wouldn't be surprised to see him again. paul ryan has brought his own mother with him on some of these speaking engagements in florida and elsewhere. they still will. they have an argument of their own that obama took money out of medicare to pass his health care plan. so they're going to keep on that message, not giving up. i will say i did recently talk to some white house officials. they're feeling very confident in florida. his campaign did a big ad buy there because they do see internal numbers breaking their way right now. so i think the romney camp does need to get in there and try to shore it up. >> okay, david, shara, good to see you as always. >>> gary johnson joins me next to talk about his conspiracy theory about the presidential debates. also mitt romney and the middle class. is it too late to make a connection? that's coming up in strategy talks. keep it here
advantage, despite being associated with the ryan plan. >> dante, if governor romney comes out big wednesday, if there's some big, bold new policy introduced at the debate in denver, how does that play? >> it may give romney a second chance. i think romney really needs to have a clear victory next week to throw new hampshire back into the mix. i mean, certainly, there is still some volatility here. no one's saying it's over here in new hampshire, but i think the thing is, new hampshire's behaving just like it did four years ago. nothing in the past four years has changed new hampshire's essential character as this democratic-leaning bellwether. >> last question here, ten seconds. we know that the state has been inundated with tv and web ads, obviously. talk to me really quickly about the ground game for governor romney. how would you characterize the governor's ground game in new hampshire? >> you know, it's somewhat -- it compares to obama, although obama got a head start, really, in the springtime. i mean, mitt romney was very prominent up to the primary. then they turned their attention t
. he wrapped up an event in ft. myers not long ago, where he said mitt romney and paul ryan will block any bipartisan attempts to reduce the debt. >> paul ryan even voted against the simpson/bowles plan he talked about now, as a member of the commission. it's important to know why. because they will not vote for a single solitary reduction in the debt if it includes one dollar in new taxes for millionaires. >> neither governor romney nor president obama have any public events scheduled today or tomorrow. they'll be spending a lot of the weekend prepping for that first debate, wednesday in denver. we'll have a whole lot more on all of these stories throughout the next three hours. president obama heading to las vegas tomorrow for a campaign rally. the president then expected to hunker down in henderson, nevada, to prepare for that first presidential debate. nbc news white house correspondent, mike viqueira, joining me live. now, mike, the president again, no public appearances today. earlier this week, he was at the united nations. he's been hitting the campaign trail hard. he's been de
up a two-day swing through florida. at a rally in ft. myers, he blasted romney and ryan on medicare. >> if what the republicans -- if what romney and ryan are saying about obama and biden is true on medicare, why would the american medical suggestion endorse our position? why would the national american hospital association and most importantly, why would aarp endorse us? >> president obama and mitt romney face-to-face as american voters weigh their choice. the first presidential debate starting wednesday night october 3rd, watch it live at 7:00 eastern time on cnn and cnn.com. >> a group of fishermen lucky to be alive after their boat capsized. their dramatic rescue was caught on tape. a tropical storm overturned their shrimping vessel off mexico's coast. they were thrown into the rough water there. but all eight of them managed to cling on to the rope before they were hauled to safety. one had to be treated for taking in too much water. the rest just lucky to walk away with a few bumps and bruises. >>> closer to home, a rescue of a different kind. a hiker had to be air lifted out
ryan, what governor romney did is he has given clear definition to all those big assertions he was making during his primary campaign. he talked a lot about a lot of things that paul ryan is talking about but the war in many details. by picking paul ryan and laying out why he was picking him, he picked paul ryan because paul ryan represents the ideological -- how can i say it -- the center of the republican party and the house of representatives. he said that is why he is picking him. now we don't have to guess about what governor running means when he talks about medicare vaguely and social security and education and all these things. it is almost like two incumbents running. paul ryan introduced the republican budget in the house of representatives controlled by republicans that pass. it lays out in stark detail what they would do on everything from medicare to medicaid to social security to education to the debt, across the board. we don't have to wonder anymore. what governor romney means when he says a, b,c, or d. what they are doing is they are not talking anymore about
's a lot of calls for romney and paul ryan to be hitting the trail a little bit more, and to be doing a little bit less fund-raising, you're seeing exactly the opposite happening on the ground. so mitt romney spent yesterday in pennsylvania. that was not exactly a battleground state. they're not even running ads there right now. so it's a little bit of a head scratcher when you take a look at where they're spending their time. how they expect to pull this thing out. >> you know what's interesting about this, too, aimee is the president's came totally lowering expectations on the debate front. is there a theme, a general theme being struck by the president's team on all this? and how much debate prep is the president actually doing, given it's been a pretty busy cycle for him in terms of running things from 1600 pennsylvania avenue? >> well, yeah, they're saying he hasn't really had time to prepare for this. he's focused on his day job, which, of course, we know is not. he's campaigning. and the other side is saying the same thing, they're both kind of giving each other very glowing re
by their insurance companies. >> reporter: romney and his running mate, paul ryan, proposed to cut medicaid by the next ten years, give states more control over their medicaid funds. overhaul medicare, people now younger than 55, when they reach retirement would have the option of getting a voucher to purchase private insurance. or they could stick with traditional medicare. >> this is designed to guarantee that seniors can always afford medicare coverage, no exceptions. >> now, there is major differences between the candidates, but perhaps the biggest split is over medicaid. many think of it as a safety net for the poor. but what it actually covers is poor families, pregnant women, people with disabilities as well as senior citizens. there is a lot to talk about. and andrew rubin joins me to talk about it. he oversees the doctors at the medical center. i hope i got it right, thank you for joining us. you know, you and i talked about this before. medicaid covers one in five americans, including more than one in three children. why -- how do you explain this as being a big issue for seniors.
think this is more about mitt romney than it is about paul ryan. it's always more about the principal than it is about the vice presidential candidate. that being said, when you talk to trks over the last few years, ever since paul ryan unveiled his medicare plan several years ago, what they've said is we hope we can play even on medicare and this is in congressional races and senate races. the idea is they want to be able to play even on it. no one saying on the republican side we think we can win 70% or 75% based on this. that's usually where politicians want to be. they want to have issues that resonate with 75% of the people, not half the people. so if they're even at that 50% mark which i don't think they are right now, that would be considered a level of victory. it's hard to go into areas with lots of seniors and say i want to change the way medicare is structured. these people have been paying into the system for their entire lives. even if it doesn't affect them. even if it doesn't take effect for another ten years, it's a program a lot would like to see be there for their ch
>> can mitt romney and paul ryan count on your support this november election? excellent. and, would you be interested in voting early this election? >> reporter: karen is credited with making the iowa gops 1 millionth voter call this cycle. >> issues that matter to iowa. >> reporter: she's doing her part now as republicans play early voting catch. >> you know, we're working hard here, we're rolling up our sleeves and putting our boots on and we're going at it. so, we still have time. >> reporter: john king, cnn, iowa city, iowa. >>> and lots more ahead as "cnn newsroom" continues with fredricka whitfield. >> i can't believe it's under 40 days under election day. it went by like this, after all. >> i'm sure a lot of people are happy a about this. >> it's true, too. we'll elaborate on that later, too. good to see you, appreciate it. >>> for now, we'll begin with new information on an investigation into a decade's old mystery, the disappearance of former teamster's boss jimmy hoffa. crews digging under a michigan shed for his possible remains say they did not find any bones, but
the tax hikes -- mitt romney and paul ryan that we need to stop all the tax hikes. the president's health-care law is driving up costs. it is making it harder for small possesses to expand and hire -- businesses to expand and hire. let's rearepeal obamacare and replace it with common sense reforms that protect american access to care they need from the doctor they choose at a lower cost. we need to look at rainy and all the excess of red tape that is making it harder to work and do business. these ideas are in my job plan. republicans have common-sense proposals to remove these. president obama puts governments first. he wants to raise taxes on small businesses. he wants to keep our energy races under lock and key including the keystone xl pipeline. he wants more spending that will put us in debt to china. more of the same. where are the jobs that no wonder jobs are fleeing overseas. let's bring those jobs home, back to america, back to local businesses. there is one more thing i tell people. i tell them i have made restoring the american dream my life work. without it i would not be wher
